What expense category for eBay fees on tax return?

Which specific expense category would you place eBay fees into?

Didn't find your answer?

I've researched this and cannot find a definitive response. It seems they are not financial charges, as they have nothing to do with merchant banking. Cost of sales is perhaps most appropriate, but I'd like to hear your views.

For me, it depends,

If you are selling your core product this way (as is more likely) then Cost of Sales.

One off sale of filing cabinet, for example, somewhere in administrative.

If the cost is only incurred because of a sale, then should be put under cost of sales.

The majority is, though a portion would be chargeable in the event of no sales, as a subscription fee. It feels like a best fit scenario.
